The -delay option determines how often the VM3 screen is refreshed. The default value is 10 milliseconds. Setting the delay to a smaller value will cause the screen to be updated more frequently. Setting the delay to 0 will update the screen as fast as possible, but will cause noticeable delay in other applications. Since most video monitors do not refresh more often than every 10 milliseconds, there is usually no advantage gained by lowering the delay.
For example, the command: vm3 -delay 8 will cause the screen to refresh every 8 milliseconds
The -load option causes VM3 to browse the firmware memory image from a file. Almost all controller memory is loaded, including FPGA registers and SynqNet buffers. This feature works in conjunction with the -save option.
For example, the command: vm3 -load meiMem.dmp will load the previously saved "meiMem.dmp" file for viewing.
The -save option specifies the name to be used for saving memory images when F8 is pressed. The -save option does not need to be specified to save memory images when F8 is pressed. The default is "whatever.dmp."
For example, the command: vm3 -saveFileName whatever.dmp will save the memory images to the "whatever.dmp" file. Memory images will continue to be saved to this file when F8 is pressed for the remainder of the session.
